|Farfalle Del Mondo|
You'll find this to be a very easy recipe to make and it is packed with lots and lots of wonderful flavor. First you'll want to be sure to have some southwest seasoning on hand. I have a favorite southwest blend that I always keep on hand and I encourage you to do the same. You'll also want to be sure you have 12 ounces of brie in your refrigerator. Brie can be pricey, so watch for specials in your grocery store. I like to buy my brie at my favorite wholesale big box store to save a few dollars. While you are there check out the pine nuts which can also be pricey in the local grocery store. Once you have these specialty items on hand you are ready to go.

|Farfalle Del Mondo Ingredients|
- 4 boneless chicken breasts, pounded to about 1/4 inch thickness
- Southwest seasoning
- 2-3 tablespoons of pine nuts, toasted
- 1 red pepper, sliced into thin strips
- 4 ounces button mushrooms, sliced
- 1 pound farfalle pasta
- 12 ounces brie, rind removed
- 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1 15 ounce can diced tomatoes, drained
- 3-4 large cloves of garlic, minced
- 1 handful chopped parsley
- 6 large basil leaves, chiffonade
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- Kosher salt
Rub the chicken breasts with olive oil and season generously with the southwest seasoning. Cook the breasts on the grill until moist and tender, about 5-7 minutes on each side. Remove from the grill and let rest 5-10 minutes, covered. Slice into strips.
Toast the pine nuts in a small dry skillet until you start to smell the nutty aroma and they are lightly browned. Watch them carefully because they will burn quickly and become bitter. Remove from the pan to cool.

Fill a large pot with water and a tablespoon of kosher salt. Bring to a boil and add the pasta. Cook per package directions. While the pasta is cooking make the sauce. Be sure you have all the ingredients ready and beside the stove. This is a quick sauce to make. In a large frying pan, heat the olive oil over medium high heat. Add the tomatoes, garlic, red peppers, mushrooms, parsley and basil and reduce the heat to low.
